Kanga Cup 2019 - Wrap Up
The McDonald’s Kanga Cup is the largest International Youth Football Tournament in the Southern Hemisphere. Held annually each July in Canberra, Australia, the week-long event proudly champions the mission of Uniting the Youth of the World through Football. 350 teams from U10 to U18 compete in Cup, Plate and Shield Divisions.
The tour experience is something that strengthens teams and forms friendships across age groups with in our club. It builds club spirit and provides an opportunity for personal growth of our juniors as players and people. It creates memories that will be held for a life time.
July 2019 saw Roselea FC tour with one girls team in the G14 age group comprising girls from G13's, G14's and G15's. With individuals from different teams and age groups spending the week together, both on and off the field, the tour provided the girls with a great opportunity to get to know other players from within the club, creating bonds of friendship and stronger club spirit.
The girls played 6 games in four days with apponents including an NPL team, two Diamond League teams and a rep team.
Thank you to the TMG parent volunteers for supporting the tour, diving in the deep end and insuring it was a positive, memorable and most importantly, enjoyable experience for the girls, but also for ourselves.
